Join us on 13th of March for a CoCo Seminar by Abelardo Pardo titled “Using Learning Analytics to help Flip the Classroom”.
The term flipped classroom has appeared recently to denote a teaching strategy in which face to face time with the students is reserved to activities requiring active participation and other tasks such as readings are supposed to occur before the lecture takes place.
Although easy to describe, the change translates into a significant perturbation on how lecturers must approach a session, and more importantly the type of activities to prepare.
The ubiquitous presence of technology together with the evolution of computing power allow for the use of learning analytics, collect, analyse and use data about how students interact to adapt these activities to maximize learning gains. How can these techniques be used in a day to day class?
This seminar will be available live online at http://webconf.ucc.usyd.edu.au/seminar-room2
